Judea and Samaria District Police retrieved forensic evidence from the scene later in the day.

Last week, a member of a Golani Brigade unit was arrested on suspicion of carrying out hate crimes together with his older brother. According to suspicions, the two punctured tires of Palestinian vehicles and spray painted messages that read “no entry to Arabs” and “death to Arabs” on a Palestinian bus in the northern West Bank.

In July, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon issued a fierce condemnation of far-right attacks, saying, “We must wage total war and display zero tolerance, while utilizing a maximum of means, as they [the attackers] do not represent the Jewish religion and the values of the State of Israel, and their actions are criminal in every way.”
